Sakura Matsuri Meeting Place

Hey guys! Here is the map of where we’ll be meeting for the Sakura Matsuri on Friday, 5/4 at 2:00 PM in Hirosaki Park.

Meeting Spot is in the upper right corner with the star. Look for a balloon.

So, like the information said, we’ll be meeting at 2 PM so everyone has a chance to see everyone and meet up before we get up and walk around (to get food etc). There is no real plan to how the day will go (or how long we’ll stay). But we WILL have Twister, cards, tarps to sit on, frisbees, and anything else you want to bring for hanging out. So far, it looks like we have 21 confirmed people coming! yay! But, I know that there are more (since not everyone replies on Facebook). We were thinking of doing some karaoke later in the evening too if everyone is down. You can find this map at the Hirosaki Station visitor Center or on the castle grounds  if you want one of your own. A few words of advice:

  • Bring sunscreen. We’re sitting in a very open area so we can run around (with very little shade). It’s been pretty warm here recently, and the sun could definitely burn a few of you.
  • Bring an umbrella. Although it’s been nice, let’s be real… this is Aomori. The weather forecast calls for rain in the AM but partly cloudy in the afternoon, so just be prepared.
  • Bring a sweatshirt. If you’re staying for the evening, and lookin’ at the night time Hanami, you’ll definitely want something warm.
  • Bring money. To buy all the food at the food booths and drinks:)
  • Go and see… The castle grounds (300 yen) they have some of the best trees up there, and a beautiful view of Iwaki. The boats (fee, you can row around the moat on the boats at the boat pier). Fujita Memorial Garden ( fee, but beautiful garden).

If you have any other questions, please contact one of the AJET reps:

We can’t WAIT to see you guys!! And we’re STOKED for the Matsuri!
